    Thank you for this guide Kelly, it will help enthusiasts know what’s real and what’s not. I find that genuine joyo pedals are immune to distortion unlike their cloned counterparts. My friend Peter has a useful post review on these pedals http://wadesound.com/compressors/joyo-pedals-review-2018/

    Great list, exactly what I was looking for. Are you sure that the JF-10 compressor was based on the MRX? I heard it was based on the classic Ross compressor circuitry. Either would be fine, it’s a great box.

      The Comp is a three knob while the dyna and Ross are two. I’ve read somewhere else that this clone of the Boss CS-2 the 80’s 3 knob version. I have the Joyo and the vintage Boss. And they sound very close. I also have a dyna comp reissue and it sounds nothing like the boss or Joyo.

    Thank you for this list! Was looking for just this breakdown. Valuable resource. Do you mind if I link to it from my website guitarpedalhub.com?

    I would like to hear some of these onto pedals and reviews.

    Would be nice to see Joyo’s current R-series pedals (and equivalents) shown.
    R01 Tauren = Klon
    R02 Taichi = Dumble amp
    and others
